Detroit seeks first regulation win over Tampa Bay since 2015

The defending Stanley Cup champions have caught fire, and a pair of games against the Central Division's last-place team cannot be expected to cool them off.

The Tampa Bay Lighting are 7-0-1 over their last eight games and have taken over first place in the division. They now head to Detroit to face the reeling Red Wings on Tuesday and Thursday.

Tampa Bay has dominated the series in recent years, carrying a remarkable 19-game point streak (18-0-1) against the Wings, dating back to Nov. 3, 2016.
